Abstract

Zeolite encapsulated Co(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes with 2-methyl benzimidazole (Mebzlh) have been used to catalyze the reaction of styrene oxide with acetone under reflux condition. The yield of the isolated product using various catalysts range from good to excellent and the efficiency of the recycled catalyst was excellent.
